Knowing which pushchair is right for you
The age of your baby will determine which type of pushchair you need.
- Newborn babies need to lie flat, so you should choose a pushchair with a fully reclining seat while your baby is young.
- From three months, you can try one that partly reclines, then from six months, it's ok for your child to sit upright.
- Many pushchairs are designed to grow with your child, featuring multiple recline positions.
We have a full range of prams and pushchairs with a number of different options for you to choose from.
When choosing, consider your budget and lifestyle. For example, if you'd like to pass it on to your next child you may consider investing more, but if you are intending to switch to a stroller after a few months, you might not spend as much.
This guide explains the different types of pushchairs and when they are most suitable for use.
A baby travel system is a fantastic all-in-one option for your child's first few months, giving you great value for money.
- It incorporates a pushchair and a compatible car seat that fits into the pushchair frame, making it easy to move your baby from car to pushchair without waking them.
- You can use a travel system from birth to about 3 years, but the baby will outgrow the car seat after about 9 months.
- A travel system is an ideal option if you use your car a lot.
- If you're going to use a travel system for your newborn baby, look for a model with multi-recline positions, so your baby can lie flat. With some models you can convert the pushchair into a pram with a lie-flat position.
